Pivot Pins! (560 SEL)
Here is one for the pros:
I just went back into my 560 SEL's timing chain setup, in order to do the driver's side rails.
When I put in the new pins on the other side, I sis not have to pound them in with a screw and a hammer. They just slipped in, snugly, but no force needed. I figured they'd expand and become snug. Also, I figured the altenator mounting plate would keep them in place.
Now as I removed the valve cover on the passanger's side, I realized the top pin had worked itself out, and the rail was only held in place by the bottom pin!!!!
DO I HAVE THE WRONG PINS????
(Thank GOD I found this. This was a timebomb wainting to happen!)
